PHILADELPHIA INDULGENCE chocolate spreadThese days, almost anything from a coffee break to a languid bath can be considered an indulgence - but a real indulgence that harks back to the true meaning of the word? That’s a different story altogether, as I soon learned when I dipped into a tub of Kraft PHILADELPHIA INDULGENCE.

Straight from the annals of “Why didn’t they think of this sooner?”, this amazing spread combines the creamy consistency of classic Philadelphia cream cheese with the absolutely delicious taste of - drumroll, please! - good ol’ chocolate. It’s an adventurous combination that yields absolutely luscious results.

Available in milk, dark, and white chocolate flavors, PHILADELPHIA INDULGENCE gives new meaning to “sinfully good.” After a bit of hemming and hawing, I purchased a tub of milk chocolate with the intention of testing it out with some cookies. And so I did, running my favorite buttery tea biscuits through the rich concoction. Not content with just a couple of yummy bites, I then dipped strawberries and mangoes into the spread. More yumminess. Finally, I took the plunge: I downed an entire spoonful on its own. It was so ridiculously good that I spent another few minutes creating a dessert roll-up of sorts, consisting of a tortilla slathered with the spread, a sprinkling of crushed walnuts, and layers of thinly sliced strawberries and bananas.

The verdict? Rich, true chocolate flavor with a pudding-like consistency. There’s a versatility to PHILADELPHIA INDULGENCE that can’t be beat, especially given that such sweet treats are usually very limited in their abilities. This chocolate spread, though, is a worthy companion for everything from salty crackers to fresh fruits - and, of course, is completely acceptable and delectable (and perhaps even preferable) all on its own.

It also happens to have the added side effect of boosting spirits. We all know just how therapeutic chocolate is anyway, but this silky smooth spread puts an entirely new spin on things. Now, without an ounce of guilt, I can add it to my usual take-five-after-a-long-day regimen: turn off the phone, grab a pile of fashion magazines, and veg out on the couch, tub of chocolate spread by my side. Indulgence, indeed.
